Saint Louis, Mis...
My mom requested a sheath dress for her Birthday. I made one from a simplicity Pattern that I had purchased over the summer. The pattern turned out to be a little advanced for my Novice skills. The dress took me about 12 hours to make. I had a friend try it on to get an idea how it fits. It is a little too big for her. (and too small for me!) It is meant to be a fitted dress.
